Introduction to MTM-1

MTM Predetermined times

MTM-1 Base

MTM Predetermined times

How to improve manufacturing costs in those processes with preponderant use of manpower, by reducing and simplifying –following the definition of the operative method- the necessary motions to carry out the work and assigning them correct and required predetermined execution times.

The MTM-1 Base training imparts knowledge of and skills in the application of MTM-1 and explains the importance of the use of the individual MTM process building block systems.

This introduction to MTM-1 is essential and mandatory for those who are about to get involved in any other training in MTM with no official certification as MTM Analyst.

The background you get is related to historical development of MTM and the importance of the Framework of MTM Process Building Block Systems, also more specific and practical training as:

  • MTM Basic Motions (limitation as to content and influencing factors), their practical application, and their importance for higher aggregated MTM process building block systems
  • Rules for the consistent and correct use of the process building block system MTM-1
  • Initial practical exercises to reduce the number of application errors or to consolidate the correct application of the process building block system MTM-1
  • MTM degrees (“Blue Card” and “Green Card”) and their national and international significance

 

The objective of the MTM-1 Base course is to:

Provide a fundamental understanding about the:

  • development and the structure of MTM-1,
  • the areas of application of MTM-1 and the prerequisites for its use,
  • the classification of MTM-1 in the Framework of the MTM Process Building Block Systems (general manufacturing environment), in which areas it is applied, in which respect it is similar to and in which it differs from other MTM process building block systems,
  • the MTM Basic Motions and their fundamental significance for higher aggregated MTM process building block systems,
  • the essential degrees in MTM training (“Blue Card” and “Green Card”) and their national and international significance, and
  • other MTM methods, such as ProKon and EAWS, as well as MTM tools, for example TiCon, and their importance and application in PEP.

At the end of this MTM-Base training the participant will be able to:

  • read MTM-1 analyses and has gained initial experience in writing MTM-1 analyses, as well as in the application of the MTM-1 rules.
  • use MTM-1 and gains initial experience in
    • planning and designing work methods, work processes, and workplaces,
    • shaping work contents (i.e. describe and assess them), and
    • improving existing work systems.
  • explain the MTM Basic Motions and their fundamental significance for higher aggregated MTM process building block systems,
  • select the MTM process building block system most appropriate in his professional environment, and
  • assess from which further training measures he will benefit most in his profession.

 

The mandatory training materials consist of the MTM-1 manual, the MTM-1 data card (MTM Standard Times data card), daily repetition exercises, and various forms, all published by MTMA. Further teaching aids are the manual-related presentation, the MTM training box, the software TiCon, and films, which are provided together with the related work system descriptions, in accordance with the syllabus.

 

Certification

All MTM courses are taught by Official Instructors and the exams are also official, granting an official title endorsed by the One-MTM, the international MTM organization.

Having passed the MTM-1 Base exam the candidate receives a certificate. Should the participant have failed the exam, a digital confirmation of participation will be issued instead of the certificate.
